  • Sale
  • Regular price £14.99

Fela‰۪s poetic use of broken English helped in resonating his message throughout Anglophone Africa.

The lyrics of ‰Û÷Roforofo Fight‰۪ illustrate Fela‰۪s frustration at intolerant, violent human behaviour by depicting a fight that breaks out in the streets in Lagos.

‰Û÷Go Slow‰۪ is a 17:22 minute groove of first-generation funk featuring a rhythmic interplay so intrinsic to Fela‰۪s Afrobeat. Lyrically, the song uses traffic jams in Lagos as a metaphor to critique the harmful social and environmental impact of urbanisation.
